    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1607 Update Deactivated FSX

    Resolved...well it took several steps...had to manually search and delete any Microsoft Flight Simulator entry in the registry related specifically to fsx.exe. This allowed the Remove to work from the DVD. Then reinstalled FSX and activated. Launched and it worked. Then I installed the Acceleration pack. Launched and got the activation error again. Went into the registry and looked for the UpperFilters setting in the MS FSX registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\CLASS
    \{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and modified it..deleted the partmgr and typed PartMgr and restarted FSX with Accel Pack, it immediately asked for activation and entered the product key and it activated successfully. This was a 24 hour pain.....but back to normal after the 1607 update.

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1607 Update Deactivated FSX

    My update to 1607 went smoothly yesterday...deferred for quite while...had to reinstall DisplayLink driver as expected. Started testing various apps. Found out that the update deactivated FSX Gold + Acceleration which was running fine on 1511. I have run FSX for many years. Tried a repair from the DVD which failed every time with an InstallShield error o cannot complete error. I tried an uninstall...was able to unistall Acceleraton pack but FSX itself will not unistall. The process starts but will eventually fails after the initial stage with the InstallShield error . Accel pack will not install as it now thinks FSX is not installed. I am at a loss. I am a 40 year computer technology professional but this one has me stumped. I tried everything on the Internet but nothing has worked. Anyone seen this issue...any fixes?

    FSX Opening Fault

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand the difficulties you are facing with the launching of the FSX. To have clarity on the issue we would like to know, if you have tried any troubleshooting steps.

    We would like to inform you that Flight Simulator X is not compatible in Windows 10. However, we would suggest you to try these steps and check if you get the error.

    1. Completely uninstall FSX.
    2. Remove all files that are in
      C:\Program Files.

    3. Reboot the machine and disable any
      security software or firewalls for the period of the install and activation.
    4. Install FSX in
      compatibility
      mode.
    5. Activate FSX from first startup.
    6. Reboot the PC and check.

    If the above steps did not fix the issue, then follow these steps after installing the FSX in compatibility mode:

    1. Press Windows + R key from the keyboard and type
      regedit.
    2. Expand the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\CLASS\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3. After you find the folder, double-click
      Upperfilters on the right side.
    4. Delete all other values except
      PartMgr.
    5. Close Registry Editor.
    6. Start FSX you should get the registration wizard.
    7. Activate and reboot the system to check the issue.

    As an additional information, you can refer Solve
    problems with activation issues for Microsoft games and mapping programs
    article, if this helps you to troubleshoot.

    We await your response.
